Brownes Dairy has expanded beyond its Western Australia market with the launch of Wiggles, a new range of prebiotic yogurt pouches, available across the nation.
The company claims it offers the only yogurt pouches for kids that contain both prebiotics and probiotics in the country. The recent release marks the first time the 133-year-old company has taken a yogurt product nationally.
Wiggles yogurt pouches uses a prebiotic fibre extracted from a plant called chicory root to help support the digestive health of consumers. The prebiotic in the yogurt assists in the growth of probiotics in the gut, to help prevent gastrointestinal problems.
Brownes Dairy spokesperson Nicole Ohm said: “We all know about probiotics, the live cultures that aid in digestive health, but many people are unaware of the importance and even the existence of prebiotics. Think of prebiotics as food for your probiotic – it helps the good bacteria grow, giving our yoghurt pouches an extra boost for kids.
“At Brownes Dairy, we’re always looking to innovate to create the most nutritious and tasty products for our little ones and being the first in Australia to create yoghurt pouches for kids with both prebiotics and probiotics solidifies our recent honour of being named one of AFR Boss’ Most Innovative Companies.”
Available in four flavours: vanilla bean, strawberry, mango and blueberry, the complete range of Wiggle pouches are made with natural fruit and whole milk. The product contains no added sugar, artificial colours or flavours and is preservative and lactose free.
The Western Australia dairy has partnered with Woolworths to share its new product throughout Australia, with the aim of growing the company’s presence.
